Two experienced Detectives from the Special Victims Unit (SVU) at VicPD talk to us about Human Trafficking (HT). HT is a complicated crime that involves Force, Fraud and Coercion - it occurs in stages and it is very difficult to get out of. Human Trafficking is one of Canada's fastest growing crimes. Victoria Police doesn't currently have an HT Unit but many frontline officers have been trained by these Detectives to watch out for signs that might indicate the crime is occurring.
If you know anyone or are concerned you're involved in Human Trafficking you can call:
Canadian Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-833-900-1010, or find more information at
